Things you need to know for turtle mating

Turtle mating takes place at certain times of year, and under certain conditions. Following are some of the frequently asked questions about turtle mating:
Do I need a separate enclosure for my turtles when they mate?
Yes, if you either:
• More than one male per female turtle • Several pairs mating turtles
An important consideration in the turtle breeding is that you should never allow the number of males than females because the males 'sexual demands may result in the ladies' poor health. Male turtles may compete with one another over a woman. For this reason, males harm if they are kept in the same cabinet. It is therefore advisable that only one pair per enclosure.

As owner, you can backup your turtles to "get in the mood" for reproduction of sprinkling their outdoor enclosure with water using a hose to simulate rain, usually in spring. At the beginning of longer days and warmer air temperatures, the turtles also wish to encourage mating.
What are the common signs that the turtles are ready for mating?

How do turtles mate?
It is typical for the male to the female turtle turtle charge when it comes to installation and start mating with her. The male can also sound like hissing or sighing. The female, however, often seems completely normal and disinterested, as if they just rest or sunbathe. If the pairing process that usually takes several hours, the female turtles tend to be so impatient that she wanders off to another area to do something else, always with the male still attached to her! Many times the male will then turn attached to his back and swept away by the female. As a novice owner may feel that the man is injured, this is not the case. This is natural behavior for turtles.
What should I know about my pet turtles on eggs?
Some beginner turtle owners may be surprised at their newly purchased female turtle laying eggs without mating to find. This is due to the fact that female turtles may retain or transfer sperm to a period of three or four years after mating. So if you bought an adult female turtle that is a possibility that your pet before your property covered.
What are the common signs that my pet turtle is ready to lay eggs?
The female turtle is often frightened and will be immersed in water for a long time to lay its eggs. It can also pace nervously, and practice making nests. The actual spawning process will take several hours to complete.

Carefully mark the top of the egg with a felt pen before being moved out of the nest, so you are sure the eggs are hatching right way up. You must also ensure that a turtle nesting area for the dry, so it will not carry eggs in the water, which can be dangerous for eggs.
